Skills / Support Groups

We offer two types of groups: skill oriented and support oriented. Skill based groups provide clients with an opportunity to interact with others as they develop and try out new skills. Support groups give the participants an opportunity to learn from one another and to know they are not alone in their struggles. Specific groups we offer include: art therapy, social thinking, emotional regulation/coping, person centered planning/transition planning, sibling support, and caregiver/parent support. Some of our groups are offered on an ongoing basis, while others are offered at specific intervals. Please contact us to get more information or to sign up for a current or upcoming group.

Social Thinking Groups

For many children and teens, navigating the hidden rules and gray areas of the social world can be challenging. Social thinking groups provide opportunities for youth of similar abilities to learn and practice social skills in a fun, non-threatening way. Skills taught range from perspective taking to problem-solving to interpreting and responding to the nuances of verbal and non-verbal communication. Group lessons are designed to address individual needs while utilizing concepts from social thinking including: The Zones of Regulation©, Superflex©, and Social Behavior Mapping.
